Walt Disney Studios has announced that it will enter into a five-year partnership with Microsoft Azure in order to create a cloud innovation lab. Disney's Walt Disney StudioLAB will be involved in the project, which is a Disney division that experiments with cloud-based workflow. The aim of the partnership is to produce creative solutions to cloud workflows if this is achieved then it could result in a faster innovation process for Disney.
Cloud technologies could help streamline the film making process as a great number of resources are spent creating films. The cloud innovation lab would give Disney the ability to better allocate resources when performing tasks such as rendering scenes or producing special effects. The Disney CTO, Jamie Voris, indicates that the process could reduce costs and production times.
